Hendry Students Again Show Poorly

LABELLE, FL. -- The Florida Department of Education again released its
statewide standardized test results showing Hendry county students among the
worst performing in the state. Those twelfth graders re-taking the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test this year are uniformally not ready to
graduate according to the results. Only 14% of seniors re-taking the test
this year passed the FCAT test in Math and 14% passed in Reading.
The tests have been given in Florida since 1998 with the 10th grade FCAT
being the high school graduation test. No passing grade means the student is
not entitled to a Florida high school diploma.
